Re: FVP10341

My FV has some of the decal, not as good as yours though. Find my thread with the video. The thread is FV15020 i think (completely forgotten the serial number)

Re: New 1974 WSPCL327MM4

Been a while since i last posted, had some stuff come up. Not to spoil it for you but it is pretty unlikely that its never been run since the factory, The only way to comfirm it hasnt would have been if it was in its box/crate and with the cardboard cover round the tank. Small amount of carbon in th...

Re: FV8905

Jeremy,

It is FVP5959 that has the LS bits in it. it has a FVP crankcase however.

But thanks i now get what you are talking about with your FV.

I would have to re check the measurement to get a figure but all i did was measure the stroke of the piston, LS stroke being longer then FVP stroke.

Re: Polishing Aluminium

Nudge, WOW :shock: very impressive work, well done. Is there any chance you would mind sharing the procedure of this, as in which order to use which discs then wheels if you get what i mean. A video of you doing the other side of the baseplate would be really cool to see and see the timescale of thi...

Re: FV8905

Jeremy, It is FVP crankcases with LS internals on FVP5959, when i stripped it down it had all LS bits including the cracked block, after careful measurements i could determine that it was a LS block. I had a complete mint LS powerhead, thats where the BLOCK ONLY came from, all the internals that i r...

Re: FV8905

Yes Jeremy, bottom crankcase is shot. i will glue them back on with jb weld since the motor will be a ornament.

And yup, crank, conrod, piston and block are all LS parts on FVP5959, good donor motor however.

Re: FV8905

Very low being around 32psi. Now stripped down, piston rings are both jammed with what looks to be a warped piston, also little or no corrosion but the bits of ali around the drive tube are snapped off. The FVP has previously been converted to 64cc so making 1 out of 2 isn't an option, plus i have a...

FV8905

Since i didn't get far with my FVP restoration as it needs a powerhead i'm going to do a full resto on this complete but poorly restored FV. Bought this with the other two back in march for a decent price. does not run, very low on compression so will be a display engine. Today i stripped it down to...
